How choose tour and the correct bike for it?
The premise is: haven’t got the appropriate bike shouldn’t be a reason to give up. There is always a solution!
Anyway, the difference between “street bike” or “off” always remains. Therefore, in order to facilitate understanding what is the best bike for every tour, we can identify bike in the following categories:
MOUNTAIN BIKE: these bikes prefer roads and paths. They have knobby shells, gearbox with short reports to tackle even the toughest climbs, suspension and hydraulic disc brakes;
ROAD BIKES: they are projected for speed with compact geometries that make them extremely responsive to each push on the pedals. They also have thin tires and foster roads on asphalt;
GRAVEL: they are a compromise that combine some features and advantages of racing bike and mountain bikes. The tires are wider than road bikes and with tessellation, so they are good for unpaved and paved roads;
E-BIKE: it’s a good bike for everyone, but particularly appropriate to those who haven’t got a specific training. They are right for any type of road surface, but better for roads and paths.
Prices include the assistance of a certificated guide who guarantees security, knowledge of the Marche territory during all bike tour. Contact us and ask a quote; our offers are flexible and customizable.
Our aim is helping people to decide the tour according to its athletic difficulty and technical difficulty, so everyone can choose the best one thinking about the own training level and ability to ride.
